Jubilee has long been one of America's most popular melons. It was introduced about 1963 by the Florida Agricultural Experiement Station. Jubilee was said to have been created by crossing together the varieties Africa 8, Iowa Belle, Garrison Hawkesbury and Leesburg.
Jubilee watermelon produces melons up to 35 lbs and can be well over a 1 foot long. They have light green skin with dark green stripes. The flesh is read and very sweet. Disease Resistant: Tolerant to Fusarium Wilt and Anthracnose
TIP: Most watermelons love and need heat, but disease problems can arise from such hot and humid conditions. Jubilee was specifically bred to handle such problems. If you live in the Southern United States where conditions are hot and humid, this is the watermelon for you!
